North Korea nerves push stocks down for third day, lift gold

"The U.S. has maintained a regular bomber presence in the Indo-Asia-Pacific since 2004 and this mission demonstrated our continued ironclad commitment to regional allies". Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says he doesn't believe there is "any imminent threat" from North Korea, including to Guam.

Just a month before a squadron of B1-B lancers, B52's and B2-Spirit Stealth bombers conducted training exercises in and around the skies of Guam and the Marianas leading North Korea to release a statement saying they will "whet more sharply the treasured sword of nuclear weapons of justice" and "all the USA military bases in the operational theatre in the pacific including Guam will face ruin in the face of all-out and substantial attack to be mounted by the army of the DPRK".

Guam is home to about 163,000 USA citizens and a US military base that includes a submarine squadron, an air base and a Coast Guard group.

The emergency meeting of the NSC standing committee went on for two hours starting at 3 pm Thursday afternoon, with National Security Office chief Chung Ui Yong chairing the event and top security-related officials including the Defense Minister, Foreign Affairs Minister, and the chief of the National Intelligence Service also joining.

"There is no really good and effective independent unilateral option that the South Korean government can take", said Bong Young-shik, a political analyst with the Yonsei University Institute for North Korean Studies in Seoul. Bear in mind that Ri said this before Trump threatened nuclear "fire and fury", and his characterization of the US's "hostile policy" is steeped in propaganda.

Aircrews, maintenance and support personnel will continue generating B-1 bomber sorties to demonstrate the continuing US commitment to stability and security in the region, providing commanders with a strategic power-projection platform and fulfilling the need for aircraft that are mission-ready at any time, an important part of national defense during a time of high regional tension, Pacific Air Forces officials said.
